9 U.S. Soldiers killed in Iraq bombing

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Nine U.S. soldiers died in two separate incidents north of Baghdad, the military said Tuesday.

Six soldiers were killed when a bomb exploded near their vehicles during a combat operation Monday in Salahuddin province, the military said in a statement.

Three other soldiers were wounded and transported to an American military hospital for treatment, it said.

In another incident the same day, three more soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb in Diyala province, another statement said. One soldier was wounded.

All nine were assigned to Task Force Lightning. Names were withheld pending family notification.

2 Suicide Bombers Kill 93 in Iraq

SF Chronicle
Two suicide bombers blew themselves up Tuesday in a crowd of Shiite pilgrims streaming toward the holy city of Karbala, killing 93 people in one of several attacks targeting the faithful ahead of a weekend holiday.

The attack came a day after U.S. forces suffered their deadliest day in nearly a month — nine American soldiers were killed in explosions north of Baghdad, the military said Tuesday.

The coordinated attack Tuesday happened on a main street in Hillah, about 60 miles south of Baghdad, said Capt. Muthana Khalid. He said 93 people were killed and more than 164 wounded.

Two men wearing explosives belts mingled among pilgrims lining up to be searched at a checkpoint before a bridge, then blew themselves up, said Brig. Gen. Othman al-Ghanemi, the regional police commander.

“This attack has created a chaotic situation and people are very angry. Many innocent people died who only wanted to practice their religious beliefs,” he said.

Libby found guilty in CIA leak trial

Excerpt:Scooter libby convictedWASHINGTON – Former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was convicted Tuesday of obstruction, perjury and lying to the FBI in an investigation into the leak of a CIA operative’s identity.

Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President
Dick Cheney, was accused of lying and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative
Valerie Plame’s identity to reporters.

He was acquitted of one count of lying to the FBI.

Libby had little reaction to the verdict. He stood expressionless as the jury left the room. His lawyer, Theodore Wells, said they were “very disappointed” with the verdict.

H.L.s Take
OK Pat, now that you have got a conviction for a guy lying about the leak, how about a trial for the actual leak, you know who did it. Cheney and Rove, now go get ’em.
